Being a crime scene investigator is a lot less sexy than television shows would lead you to believe. Finding maggots under her clothes was one of many less-than-glamorous moments Dana Kollman faced as a Baltimore County Police Department CSI.
Now a Towson University professor and author of the sold-out book, “Never Suck A Dead Man’s Hand: Curious Adventures of a CSI," Kollman shared her experiences with a crowd of more than 100 attendees Tuesday night at the Perry Hall Library.
See the above video for an excerpt from the event.
Her presentation marked the kick-off of the Perry Hall Library's first speaker series, sponsored by the Friends of the Perry Hall Library.
"We think there probably is a market for doing this here at the library, so we're going to have three more this year and we're hoping next year we can continue it and expand it," said Jaymee Farinacci, president of the Friends.
The next planned speaker is Zippy Larson on June 4, discussing the Baltimore years of Wallis Warfield Simpson and King Edward's relationship. On Sept. 20, Rafael Alvarez, former Baltimore Sun reporter and writer of "The Wire," is expected to speak in celebration of the Perry Hall Reading Group’s 10th anniversary. This year's fourth event has not yet been announced.
